Kanye West Is Back On Twitter And He Said He Loves Trump And Called Emma Gonzalez A Hero In The Same Week

Kanye West is back on Twitter after a long break from the social media platform. The rapper returned in true Kanye form and tweeted about every thing and any thing that crossed his mind. He has been tweeting about shoesLamar Odom, shared random inspirational quotes, and it seemed like he wasn’t going to stop.

Then West took things a step further and tweeted about his love and appreciation for President Trump. Despite Kanye visiting Donald Trump soon after the election, many people had no idea his love for Trump was that deep. Last week, West took to Twitter to rant saying: “Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.” West followed that up with, “You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Then, West turned his Twitter attention to gun reform activists and Parkland shooting survivor Emma González and things didn’t work out as West probably hoped for.

Kanye West expressed on Twitter that Emma González is his hero.

Now, some people might be really happy for Kanye West to call them his hero. However, a gun reform activist, who grew up in the age of social media, probably isn’t going to be the best audience following a pro-Trump message.

People on social media were confused by the pro-Trump and pro-gun control messaging.

It’s totally cool to support contradictory causes, right?

González took the moment to give some love to her hero, James Shaw Jr.

James Shaw Jr. is the man who saved the lives of several people at the Waffle House in Tennessee after a gunman opened fire and killed four people. Shaw Jr. didn’t have a gun himself but he saw an opportunity to subdue the gunman and took the chance ending the shooting.

People applauded the teen for using the tweet as a moment to highlight a hero.

Just imagine yourself in high school getting a tweet from West calling you his hero.

West later tweeted that he shaved his head after the gun control advocate.

González didn’t respond to this tweet.

There is a lot of confusion on Twitter about West’s tweets.

It wasn’t long ago that West shared a photo of a signed “Make America Great Again” hat.

Clearly the people are demanding some answers.

So, which is it, West?

Kanye West Received 60,000 Votes In His Run For U.S. President Across 12 Different States

Talk about a waste.

As the election edged closer to an end on Wednesday, rapper Kanye West finally threw in the towel and conceded a loss in his presidential run tweeting “WELP KANYE 2024” shortly after midnight. After a long night of waiting, the “Mercy” rapper tallied in a little over 60,000 votes for president of the United States. This is after being featured on the ballot in 12 states and bringing in millions of dollars (of which were primarily his own) to the campaign.

As of 10:30 a.m. PT on Wednesday, West’s exact count was 60,761.

According to Associated Press News, Kanye’s updated state-by-state count is below.

By 10:30 a.m. PT on Wednesday, with the exceptions of Colorado, Utah, Mississippi and Vermont, the states in question had above 90% of votes counted. Colorado, Utah, Mississippi and Vermont had only all above 70% counted.

Arkansas: 4,040
Colorado: 6,254
Idaho: 3,631
Iowa: 3,202
Kentucky: 6,259
Louisiana: 4,894
Minnesota: 7,789
Mississippi: 3,277
Oklahoma: 5,590
Tennessee: 10,216
Utah: 4,344
Vermont: 1,265

By midnight of the election, West’s name was trending on Twitter after he revealed that this would be his first time voting.

Kanye, who ran as an independent, received at least 60,000 votes from Americans. According to Deadline, “a few states were still under 80% reported as of this writing, our count puts him at 59,781 total votes. Thus, it’s a pretty good guess he’ll go over 60,000 by the time all states are fully counted.”

When it comes to states, West pulled in most votes from Tennessee, where he brought in a total of 10,188 votes. “While the rap mogul did rank 4th in some state races, his percentage of the vote was never more than .04%,” Deadline reports.

Soon after Joe Biden made his election night speech, Kanye tweeted his concession.

According to The New York Times, West voted in Wyoming where he owns a ranch and has spent much of his time in quarantine. MarketWatch reports that West asked voters in California to write his name on their ballots but he reportedly missed the filing deadline to be a write-in candidate in the state.

According to the Federal Election Commission, the rapper raised $11.5 million for his campaign through mid-October. A little over ten million of those donations were loans made by West to his own campaign.

Kim Kardashian Is Asking For ‘Compassion and Empathy’ Amidst Kanye West’s Mental Health Issues

In recent weeks, Kanye West has exhibited behavior that is shocking to many.

On Sunday, the rapper made various disturbing and false claims during a rally that he held for his 2020 presidential campaign. At one point he accused American abolitionist Harriet Tubman of “never actually” freeing slaves. He also astonished many when he at one point began to weep openly about his personal life and tearfully made points that seemed to be against abortion.

In response to his behavior, his wife (Kim Kardashian West) posted a statement to her Instagram page asking for “compassion and empathy.”

In a post to her Instagram page, the reality television star requested “empathy” and privacy as she attempts to secure help for her husband’s bipolar disorder.

“As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder,” she wrote in a statement posted to her Instagram story. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health.”

Kardashian West said she felt compelled to speak out on behalf of her husband because of “stigma and misconceptions” related to mental health in general.

The SKIMS founder has remained silent about her husband’s behavior in recent months, particularly more recently when he announced his bid for the 2020 presidential election. Since his announcement, the “Yeezus” rapper has gained criticism for his part in potentially influencing an election in which seemingly everything is on the line.

Addressing the situation, Kardashian West explained that misconceptions about her husband are worsened in ways because of his high profile and wealth.

“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this,” she said before thanking her fans for their support.

Since his presidential rally over the weekend, the rapper has displayed symptoms associated with a bipolar person in the throes of a manic episode.

On Monday, West unleashed a series of tweets that lambasted those close to him and accused his wife of attempting to “lock him up.” In one tweet he called his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, “Kris Jong- Un.”

In the past, West has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder. He has also been vocal about his contempt for medication.

In 2016, West was hospitalized for exhaustion and reportedly placed on a psychiatric hold. At the time, West was on his “Saint Pablo” tour and made comments about being a Trump supporter.

At one point he aired grievances about his relationship with singer Beyoncé claiming that he “was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” he said. “Now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. F–k winning, f–k looking cool. F–k looking cool. F–k being cool. F–k all that, bruh,” he said at the time according to Variety.

Here is Kardashian-West’s full statement below.

“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.

“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.

“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at time can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.

“Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true. We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and for your understanding.”
